President Drew Fulton and Treasurer Malcolm Gauld were at the Glynhill Ladies International today, Saturday, to watch Team Barbezat playing in their final game. They are a young Swiss team visiting Braehead for the first time and, although they lost all of their games, three were only by a single shot. When I spoke to them yesterday, they were not sure if they were enjoying themselves, having just been heavily beaten by Team Sidorova, (the current European Champions) but are hoping to come back next year. I presented them with Drystanes Pin Badges
Photographs of Drew and Malcolm presenting the girls with Dress Stewart scarves can be seen here.
The Glynhill Ladies International 2016 will run from Thursday 14th January through to Sunday 17th January 2016.
Full details of the draw can be found here.
As in previous years, Drystanes have sponsored one of the teams and this year we have drawn Team Barbezat from Switzerland (see above). Do come along to support them at some point in the competition, and if your luck is in, get your photograph taken! President Drew and Treasurer Malcolm will be making a presentation to the girls after one of their games.
Congratulations to Team Drystanes 1 (William Johnson, Mark Lombardi, Fraser Munro & Colin Keir) for winning their section in the David Duncan Trophy. They now progress to the semi-final on Wednesday 20th January where they meet C & R. Thanks are also due to those who subbed in the odd game.
Team Drystanes 2 were less successful and did not qualify for the semi-finals.

The first two phases of the Fulton Trophy have been completed and the competition has developed a three-way split. Team F skipped by John Fingland leads Team B skipped by President Drew Fulton by a single point, the reverse of the situation after the first phase. Teams A & C are locked in a battle for the middle of the table whilst Teams D & E are propping up the bottom of the table.
We now have a break of a few weeks to accommodate the league stages of the Jack Turner Trophy
and the Fulton Trophy resumes on 10th February for the third & final phase.
